Interesting review. Does anyone know whether this will work with Pentax DSLRs? The reason I ask is because unlike some other DSLRs, my K-50 won't even fire the V5 trigger if the shutter speed is above 1/160. So will the camera just ignore the V6 II if the shutter speed is greater than 1/160?

Yes, it does work with Pentax DSLRs as well.

That's because Pentax automatically disables flash triggering for shutter speeds higher than the sync-speed.

Actually, you could use up to 1/180s, if you chose 1/2 EV steps.

The V6II supports higher shutter speeds, though, as it prevents the camera from disabling flash triggering.

Both HSS and PowerSync work up to 1/8000s on the K-5 II and K-1. On the K100D I get a tiny black bar at the bottom of the frame at 1/4000s in HSS mode.
